Movies & Mixes Monday: Soundtracks, Part 1

I have no idea if this is going to work, but here's something good to listen to, especially at night. Jon Brion (a la Eternal Sunshine and so many more soundtracks) is seriously a genius, and Pandora is doing an amazingly good job with selecting appropriate tracks! I approve. If it doesn't work, I was trying to link you up to Jon Brion radio on Pandora. You should take a listen!

Some of my favorite songs from soundtracks are, as well as the movies they're in...

Ice Dance: Edward Scissorhands
Phone Call: Eternal Sunshine
Can You Feel the Love Tonight?: Lion King
All the Trees of the Field Will Clap Their Hands: Driving Lessons
Caring is Creepy: Garden State
Hedwig's Theme: Harry Potter
La Vie en Rose: La Vie en Rose

I have so many more, but that's for another post, as this one is running a bit long. Hope this starts out your day well! I feel like soundtracks are so important that they can make or break a movie. Do you have any favorites?

  1. I'm a soundtrack lover. You should listen to Philip Glass. He did the soundtrack for The Hours. Seriously beautiful piano music. I also love the soundtracks for The Life Aquatic and Royal Tenenbaums. Wes Anderson movie soundtracks are a guilty pleasure.

  2. Jon Brion.... that man... he gets me every time with his music. Especially with this movie. This is one of my all time favorite movies. Many tears are shed when watching this movie. *so good!*
